Candace and her team were amazing! She did hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party and mothers. All together there were 12 of us. We had rented a suite at the Omni Fort Worth to get ready for the day and her and her team met us there at 8am. The level of professionalism was above and beyond and there are no words for the quality. Not to brag, but we all looked stunning! There was a common overall theme for each girls hair and makeup but everyone did something a bit different. It was also a cool 39 degrees and we took photos outside- everything stayed in placed and still looked perfect after the ceremony. My mom, my husbands mom and myself all had a trial prior to the big day. I would absolutely recommend Candace for hair and makeup. I was so happy with the results and I am dying to get my pictures back from my photographer to see my overall look together.

LaTonia was the hair stylist for my sister's wedding, and she did an amazing job with our bridal party. Each person had a different hair style, including updo's, curled hair that was all down, and half-up do's. The bride's hair was an especially beautiful updo with curls in the back appearing like roses and a few loose curls to frame her face. Everyone's hair was done in a timely manner, and each style stayed put together throughout the day, which was about 12 hours. LaTonia and her team were fun to work with and very accommodating to our style preferences. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

I made plans to dress as a women for Halloween, and Meghan did such a great job on the makeup no one recognized me, and made it a great costume. I will make sure that if I do this again, I will be contacting her.

She was on time and very professional but also very kind, and she really listened to what I wanted. I will definitely use her services again. It was a great experience!

Khiana was very professional and very nice. She was able to do the hair for the girls in my bridal party and was able to do touch ups on make up and hair at the chapel. She was a big help when I had a small emergency prior to going down the aisle.

Headliner Press did the makeup and hair for my wedding flawlessly. The treatment I received was no less than stellar, the makeup was beautiful, honestly the most beautiful I've ever felt in my life. All my bridesmaids were ecstatic as well and the wedding was that much better and memorable because my experience with Headliner Press was immaculate. For my bridal photo shoot they went above and beyond as well! Even though the shoot ran long, Headliner Press stayed the whole time and did touch up whenever it was necessary to make sure I had the best pictures.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a hair extension?

    A hair extension is a beauty product designed to give you the appearance of longer and/or fuller hair. Hair extensions are made of synthetic material or real human hair and are attached to your natural hair by a variety of techniques such as a weave (sewing), hot fusion, tape-in, cold fusion, bonding, metal clips, micro ring or micro loops, and more. The type of technique you select as well as the quality and volume of the hair you choose all affect cost. Hair extensions can last anywhere from three weeks to six months, depending on the application technique. For example, tape-in extensions may last approximately four weeks, while extensions applied using a hot fusion technique may stay in for up to six months. The hot fusion technique takes longer, costs more, and requires more training on the part of the hair stylist, but the result is more natural-looking extensions that can be washed and heat-styled with confidence.

    What is a mobile hairdresser?

    A mobile hairdresser is a cosmetologist trained to cut, color and style hair who can provide hairdressing services at remote locations. Often, mobile hairdressers are hired for events such as weddings, bachelorette parties, prom night, birthdays and other occasions. The hairstylist can come to your location to do your hair, or provide hairstyling for your group.

    For events, mobile hairstylists more often provide updos and formal styles than highlights or hair color. Mobile hairdressers bring all the necessary hairstyling tools and products such as lotions and sprays to create your look. The national average cost for a hairstylist is $70-$110. Pricing for different services can vary greatly depending on stylist reputation, training and regional rates. For example, haircuts could range between $35 and $150, while hair coloring services could range in price from $65 to $200. Some mobile hairstylists may include the cost of travel in their fees, while other may have it as an added charge, such as 50 cents to $1 for each mile beyond their standard service range.

    How much should you tip a hairstylist?

    A hairstylist can provide you with a cut, color or highlights, or style your hair for an event. The national average cost for a hairstylist is $70-$110, but prices can vary greatly depending on the service you receive, where you live, and the salon’s or hairdresser’s reputation. A good rule of thumb is to tip your hairstylist 20 percent of your total bill. In smaller towns, 15 percent may be the norm, but in larger cities 20 percent is generally the baseline. If you frequent a salon where the shampooer, colorist, and hair cutter are all different people, you can divide that 20 percent among those service providers in proportion to the skill level and time required to do their job. Many hairstylists rent a chair from the salon and must pay a monthly rent to the salon owner.

    What is a seamless extension?

    A seamless hair extension is a type of clip-on hair extension. The extension hair is called the weft. Near the top of the weft, a metal clip mounted to the weft on a silicone base is used to attach the extension to your natural hair. In a traditional clip-on extension, the base that attaches the metal clip to the weft is fabric.

    People may prefer seamless extensions due to their lower profile; the silicone can be up to 50 percent thinner than the fabric, making the extension appear more natural — and, therefore, seamless. Seamless extensions usually can be washed (although you shouldn’t keep them submerged for more than 20 seconds) and heat-styled on lower heat settings. You can gently brush seamless hair extensions as well as have them dyed a darker color by a trained professional.

    How much do hair extensions cost?

    Hair extensions are synthetic or real human hair integrations that add volume and length to your hair. Hairstylists are trained in different techniques to attach extensions to your hair. The cost of extensions can vary greatly depending on the technique used to apply the hair, as well as the type of hair you select. Synthetic hair is typically the least expensive, human hair is next on the pricing scale, remy hair is next, and what is called “virgin” human hair is generally the most sought-after and most expensive. Remy hair signifies that all the cuticles are intact and running in the same direction, making for smoother hair extensions in the long term. Hair is deemed virgin when all the hair is from one donor and has never undergone any chemical processing. Hair prices will vary from company to company; here are some examples of hair from online retailers.

    • Virgin strands (25 strands weighing approximately 1 gram each) for hot fusion application: $44 per bundle.
    • Virgin hair weave (approximately 4 ounces per package): $149 each.

    Here are some sample application costs from hairstylists.

    • Full sew-in: $175-$200 or more.
    • Partial sew-in: $125 or more.
    • Micro-link weft extensions: $300 or more.
    • Full-bonded extensions: $75 or more.
